Goodbye "Puck"

Hall of Famer Kirby Pucket dies at 44


This is a bummer. I'm a die-hard Braves fan and I remember October of 1991 and having me little heart broke by the Puck with a game winning home run in the 11th inning of the World Series. We had the Twins down 3-2 in the series up to that point. As a long suffering "Bravo", I had waited a long time for my team to get to the Big Dance. He jogged around the bases with that big grin on his face and I threw the remote control at the TV (Never been a good loser!). What a moment!

The Twins went on to win the series of the "Worst to First" teams that year, the first time in history that two such teams ever played. At the end I stood up in my living room and clapped. It was a great series - even if we didn't win.

But I would also become a fan of Puck and admired not only his play on the field, but his character off the field.

He was truly a class act.

Thanks Puck!

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
